My Flight of Fancy!

Yesterday brought so many beautiful surprises!!
We received fabric from Moda by French General called "Rouenneries" that just immediately got my imagination running wild! For some reason I kept seeing birds! (my robin friend maybe???). When I emailed Lissa Alexander at Moda about LOVING the fabric, she emailed me images of the entire line............ you won't believe this!........... it has a bird print!!!! Anyway, I've designed the quilt itself & have started drawing the embroidered blocks. It's going to be redwork & I'm going to call it "Flight of Fancy"!! I'm going to use Lecien's Cosmo embroidery floss......... THIS IS THE NEXT EXCITING PART!............ they have floss that comes on spools & is already just 2 strands!!!! YAHOO!!!!! I got some of that yesterday too! Yup, yesterday was Christmas!
We'll be carrying the Cosmo floss & should have it available before too long. They also have a floss on spools that has 3 strands...........hmmmmmmm............... opens up a WORLD of possibilities! Nireko from Lecien also sent swatches of lacy, embroidered, really fine ecru fabrics. That really got me thinking too! I can just picture what to do with it! Now I have to get busy & start drawing!!
Talk to you later! xox Meg

The COSMO 2-strand on spools is intriguing! Do you have an Internet or brick and mortar store to purchase?
